A private person needs to provide the passport and, in some banks, a confirmation of residence address, as well as a recommendation letter from another bank, which constitute the standard set of due diligence documents.
A legal person needs to provide a package of set-up documents, including incorporation certificate, contract of association, document confirming authority of director and power of attorney (granted to a person who is entitled to manage the bank account).
